in strong trades. The NE trade wind blows down the bay but the fetch is
so short that no chop can develop and waves do not wrap in.
We anchored near the mouth of the bay in 3 meters of water and moved closer to the beach in about 2.5 meters a couple of days later after a bit of surveying revealed the water to be deep until quite close to the beach. Holding is excellent in sand.
Swell will wrap in if the winds are between SE and WNW so a winter storm will chase you out.
